  • Critical Race Theory: The Civil Rights Issue of our Time. Swain is an expert on CRT and co-authored the best-selling book, Black Eye for America: How Critical Race Theory Is Burning Down the House. She exposes the true nature of Critical Race Theory and offers concrete solutions for taking back the country's stolen institutions. Dr. Swain describes CRT in theory and practice, accounting for its origins and weaponization within American schools and workplaces. She also explains how this ideology threatens traditional American values and legal doctrines, including civil rights.
  • Why Diversity Training is All Wrong. Isn’t “diversity training” supposed to be a good thing? Then why is the training that many companies and educational systems currently use dividing us? Dr. Swain offers her wisdom and insight on why most current training is not getting the desired results and offers practical ways to bring greater harmony to your team by respecting everyone’s civil rights and equality under the law. The goal is to encourage Americans to rediscover and re-embrace our national motto: E pluribus unum(Out of many, one). Swain is the founder of Unity Training Solutions, a company devoted to helping you achieve your goals by providing viable alternatives to the counterproductive critical race and gender theories that divide Americans and disrupt institutions.
  • Carol Swain: From Poverty to Prosperity. From high school dropout to teenage wife and mother to highly accomplished university professor and public intellectual, Dr. Carol Swain shares her inspiring story. She tells how education, hard work, and faith brought her from poverty and humble beginnings in Virginia to being a nationally recognized political commentator and best-selling author. Her story will inspire you and illustrates how anyone can live the American Dream no matter their race, gender, or background.
  • Tackling Today’s Culture Issues from the Teachings of Jesus. Consulting Jesus on how to find eternal life is common. But what relevance do Jesus’ teachings have for contemporary life? When it comes to core worldview topics such as human life, marriage, and race, should it be Christ or culture that decides our convictions? Can we really find intelligent answers to contemporary quandaries in the ancient teachings of Jesus? In In her latest book, Countercultural Living: What Jesus Has To Say About Life, Marriage, Race, Gender, and Materialism Countercultural Living, Dr. Swain confronts cultural consensus with the countercultural and surprisingly compelling teachings of Jesus.

    If you want to find clarity on tough questions and to build your convictions on Jesus’ teachings, you will value Swain’s insightful, practical, and, at times, autobiographical survey of these important topics from a biblical perspective.
